Pours hazy gold with a sturdy white head that leaves tons of lacing. Aroma of fruity yeast esters, dank hops, some spiciness, slight burnt rubber. Taste is kind of tart and sweet up front, kind of thick body with a firm hop finish that lingers. Nice hop taste here. This beer is pretty much all over the place but certainly interesting.

Bière jaune dorée, voilée, belle effervescence, surmontée d’un très large col, dense et rocailleux laissant une formidable dentelle sur les parois du verre. Arômes surtout houblonnées, houblon floral et léger d’épinette, avec de la levure, du pain, du grain frais, léger sucre d’orge, des agrumes, de la pêche et des fruits tropicaux (cantaloup et mangue surtout). Très beau nez, assez intense, riche, complexe. En bouche, moyennement pétillante sur la langue, avec une excellente onctuosité au palais, c’est soyeux, huileux, liquoreux. Au goût, d’abord très douce en bouche, pain, sucre d’orge, miel, pêche et fruits tropicaux, ensuite le houblon floral revendique sa domination, avec des pointes d’épinette et d’agrumes. Goût intense, riche et complexe, un véritable délice, un très gros coup de cœur pour moi!

Bottled 750ml PBFVIII vintage 2010
Clearlish yellow-orange color, good steady white head, lace. Old socks and old hops in the nose. Medium-bodied, mellow. Fruity hoppyness, grassyness. Vintage 2010 has lost its best shape by now.

Hummm! Le nez est enivrant! Des fruits, beaucoup de pommes rouges. Un arôme exquis! En bouche, c’est intense mais controllé. Assez originale, avec sa petite touche acidulée et son niveau d’alcool élevé mais bien caché. Elle n’arrive pas à conquérir mon coeur, mais je comprends très bien qu’elle y parvienne avec plusieurs!

Couleur dorée trouble avec un col mousseux blanc. Nez de fruits et d’épices. En bouche mélange complexe d’épices et de fruits. Bière bien construite pas tout a fait mon genre par contre!

2010 Vintage
Tasted in late 2011 from a capped 750mL bottle obtained in a trade. Pours clear light orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to thick lace. The nose is sweet and fruity with some spicy hops and yeast and lightly bitter hops aroma. The flavor is the same spicy hops and yeast with some dried peach and apricot pitted fruit, and finishing with some nice spicy bitterness. The body is full and very sticky with light carbonation and a long lightly sweet dried fruit and pleasantly bitter finish.

2007 capped 750 from Bu11zeye. Pours hazy orange gold with a creamy off-white head. In a Westvleteren chalice. Aroma is malty, floral/zestspicey. Med + body. Flavor is light toffee, bitter zest, earth, floral. Finishes that way - well blended. Not a trace of heat. Enchantingly delicious.

2007 bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours cloudy golden with an attractive off-white head and a citrus and toffee aroma. There is an earthy toffee flavor that has blended in with the hops over the years. Hopheads would likely be disappointed with this development with the "in your face" bitterness gone, but I love the aged flavor. Cannot detect the alcohol.

I had pretty high expectations going into this one and was anticipating a bit more of a hoppy presence and a little more body. It was certainly enjoyable, light bodied, mild hop, smooth aftertaste. Well balanced and pleasant but nothing spectacular. If it weren’t for the abv I would assume on flavour alone it wouldn’t hold up to many lower abv peers.
